Forget hydrogen fuel cells or bio-fuels.
FYI we already have an abundant sourse of carbon neutral bio-fuels HEMP! We can grow it on fallow land,thus not effect food supplies. Its just because BIG business and BIG government keep it ILLEGAL for population control and profit reasons.FYI The first cars ran on Hemp Oil and where even made from Hemp. The desiel engine was designed to run on hemp oil NOT hydrocarbons aka oil.
YOUR GOVERNMENT IS LYING ABOUT DRUGS ,BIG TIME!!!
In REALITY THERE IS NO FUEL CRISIS! There is only a manufactured fuel crisis as a means to make massive profits.FYI OIL is NOT a FOSSIL FUEL and it is most probably a renewable fuel sourse!!BUT it is still a major pollutant and actually probably part of the Earths plate tectonics, so we really should NOT be drilling it until we really know what it is and what it does!
THEY ARE LYING ABOUT OIL ,BIG TIME!!!
AND YOUR HEALTH
AND THE ENVIROMENT
AND THE ECONOMY
MEANWHILE……IN REALITY (aka EDINBURGH UNIVERSITY)
(NaturalNews) Efforts to develop alternative, renewable forms of energy have taken a whole new direction as researchers from the University of Edinburgh’s School of Engineering and Physical Sciences recently announced a strange, almost humorous, new way to develop energy. Shanwen Tao and Rong Lan, two postdoctoral chemists from the university, have developed fuel cell prototypes that they say run on urine, converting it to both electricity and clean water.
According to a Yahoo! India news report, the team’s fuel cells utilize a compound in urine called urea, which is an organic chemical waste product that results when the body metabolizes protein. And unlike current hydrogen gas and methanol fuel cell technologies, both of which can be problematic to the environment, urea is non-toxic, rich in useful nitrogen and readily available for use.
Also known as carbamide, urea does not require expensive catalysts like platinum to operate, either. The team was able to develop a simple and relatively inexpensive method with which to convert urea into water, nitrogen, carbon dioxide and electricity — all at the same time.
The “Carbamide Power System” prototype, as it is being called, has the potential to reduce waste water treatment costs as well because many municipal water systems already spend big bucks removing urea from waste water. So by integrating the technology into existing water systems for the purpose of extracting urea, the fuel cells are a win-win prospect because they have the potential to generate large amounts of electricity cheaply as well as reduce overall costs for utilities.
The project was made possible by a $203,000 grant from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council, with the goal of one day utilizing urine fuel cells on remote islands and in deserts and submarines where energy can be difficult to generate. But the potential uses are limitless, if and when such technology is publicly unveiled.

THESE ARE THE PLACES WE NEED TO FINANCE , NOT UNPROFITABLE , IRRESPONSIBLE , AND CRIMINAL BANKERS!!!
THESE ARE THE PEOPLE WE NEED TO LISTEN TOO, NOT CORRUPT LOBBYIST BRIBED POLITIONS AND BIG BUSINESS SPOKESMEN!!
REPRESENTATIVE DEMOCRACY IS NOT RELIABLE BUT AT LEAST ITS CONSISTANT …..THAT’S CONSISTANTLY CORRUPT!!!
THE SOLUTION? DIRECT DEMOCRACY AND LIBERTARIAN SOCIALISM?
